Asked about his shouting match with New York Rangers coach John Tortorella during Game 4 of the 2012 NHL Eastern Conference Finals on Monday, New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer said “I think emotion takes over … took offense at what happened on the ice, and ”http://www.asapsports.com/show_interview.php?id=79765" target="new">that was my outlet, right or wrong."
DeBoer’s Devils won 4-1 Monday, knotting the best-of-seven series at 2-2. Game 5 is Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network). Thus far in the series the teams have alternated victories.
“I think the one thing we’ve learned with these playoffs is momentum hasn’t played a role, I don’t think, in either team’s series, when you look back over the three rounds,” DeBoer said.“So we just want to keep doing what we’re doing. We feel that if we stick to our game plan, that whether we play on the road or at home, that good things will happen.”
